[b]Game Recap[/b]

The Carolina Hurricanes (13-8-1) kicked off the Ellis/Peters era in style with a big win over Buffalo. The Canes led throughout and the Sweet TEA line (Tlusty, Eric, Semin) was in it's original form as they accounted for 7 points tonight which brigs their total to 27 points in their last four games. Thanks to a Winnipeg loss to Florida, the Canes now hold a commanding six point lead in the South East division. The Canes are back at it on Thursday night as they take on Eastern Conference beast, Montreal at PNC Arena.
